Emma’s sudden awareness of own mortality ruins house party
An Exeter woman has completely ruined a perfectly good house party by suddenly realising she’s definitely going to die one day.
The realisation dawned on Emma Cox, 21, after she took some mushrooms her friend, Kate Stevens, 20, had assured her were “totally natural” and therefore harmless.
“One minute we were all having fun, the next Emma was rocking back and forth on the sofa and saying ‘none of it matters,’” explained Kate.
“Apparently she’d only just realised that death is inevitable, which is a bit slow on the uptake, to be honest.”
“By the time she was curled up in a ball sobbing ‘Everything… just… gone… forever?’ so had most of the party guests.”
“Emma’s probably not going to die for many years, but she sure knows how to kill a party dead.”
